Precision Ag activations and subscriptions available
Producers purchasing a 4240 Universal Display have an abundance of choices when deciding which Precision Ag applications to use on their display. The 4240 Universal Display includes basic documentation with the display purchase and is priced with a permanent, non-transferable AutoTrac™ activation.
- Some producers may want an implement-only display. They can purchase the display less AutoTrac activation.
- Some producers may want to use the display as an automated guidance-only display. They can purchase the display with the default permanent, non-transferable AutoTrac activation.
- Some producers may want to use the display for more advanced Precision Ag applications such a pulling a tow-behind sprayer. They should consider the 4240 Universal Display with the default permanent, non-transferable AutoTrac activation and add a 1-year 4240 Data Sync and Sectional Control subscription.
- Other producers may want the functionality provided with Section Control and Data Sync but not need AutoTrac. They should consider the 4240 Universal Display less AutoTrac activation and add a 1-year 4240 Data Sync and Section Control subscription.
Regardless of the choice a producer makes during the initial purchase, a permanent, non-transferrable 4240 AutoTrac activation or a 4240 Data Sync and Section subscription can be added as a field-installed option. This approach allows producers to start their Precision Ag journey with a Gen 4 display and add the applications they want and need as they become more comfortable with John Deere Precision Ag Technology over time
Generation 4 Display compatibility
This document lists all the compatible equipment approved with the software update 19-2 release, and is subject to change with newer software updates. To ensure complete and proper compatibility, the most current version of implement control unit software, Generation 4 Display software, or compatible farm management information software (FMIS) should be used. Non-current software versions will require an update before support can be provided. Unapproved software version configurations will not be supported.
The software update 19-2 release is only compatible with 4600 CommandCenter™ v2 processors. Software update 17-2 is the last release that was compatible with 4600 v1 processors.
Server serial numbers are as follows:
v1 = RWG prefix
v2 = PCG prefix
Activate Gen 4 display software remotely
Over-the-air activations were enabled with the 18-1 software update to the Gen 4 displays. With that software update or newer, a John Deere dealer can send activations to a Gen 4 display without leaving the office. Over-the-air activations also eliminate the need to manually enter long activation codes like was done previously. This also eliminates multiple trips between the cab and the farm office to enter codes and verify completion.
NOTE: Over-the-air activations requires a current JDLink™ Connect subscription and Mobile Telematics Gateway (MTG). Planter and platform activations and subscriptions cannot be updated over-the-air.
